On September 6, 1781, Benedict Arnold’s forces attacked New London and Fort Griswold in Groton. The nearby home of Ebenezer Avery, himself severely wounded, served as a field hospital.  It is said it took generations for the bloodstained floors to be worn away.

The Avery House is on the grounds of Ft. Griswold State Park, and administered by the Avery Memorial Association.
